Cir clips
« on: December 13, 2011, 05:11:51 pm »
I have searched the damned internet from A to Z and can't for the life of me  find out where in the world you can buy wire circlips .Now I know somebody some where sells them .One would  certainly  think you wouldn't have to buy a million  at a time either , like 10-20 maybe .

Thanks .I had looked up Wiseco  but all I could find was motorcycle cir  clips which were a lot too large for a chainsaw engine .Now I wonder how thick they are which is the problem with a majority of after market clips .To damned thick .

I'm going to get an order together for MFG soon for some carb kits .I'll order a few clips and check them out .

I had come across that company that makes those circlip installation tools too. Looks like only 12mm and up though.

Geeze 43 bucks a pop .

The ones I make you still have to start the clip in but it works better than trying to shove them in with a screwdriver then --twang ,in orbit to never return again .

The hand pinners at work use a nylon pusher with an aluminum spring loaded collar  .Set the clip  in and shove it home,easy but it's like  a 20 MM clip.

The bigger clips aren't that big of a deal but the 10's and especially the little 8's are a real challange .

This is from an old Remington service bulletin.
Thought it might be a good patern for a tool if you need one.
Little slot on end removes clips very nicely. Good idea to cover with a rag after engaging tool before prying clip out though. Unless you like looking for part where ever they may go.

I ordered a bunch of electron tubes to fix the Monarch lathe .So with any luck I should be able to crank out some circlip installers shortly .

It's a long story but the short of it is the fact it's an old style thyratron electron tube DC voltage and field control for probabley one of the finest toolmakers type lathe ever made .I've been playing with that SOB for several years .One last go at it and then I'm going to bite the bullit and shell out 1500 for a new solid state drive assembley .Might sound like a lot but price a Monarch model 10 EE on flea bay sometime .Monarch in Sidney Ohio gets between 7 and 10,000 bucks to change one over to modern components .The last of this model they sold was to United Airways for over 90 thousand dollars .I have 800 in this one .

This thing is so precise I could cut threads on a needle .
